Frequently asked questions (FAQs):
Resurrecting a defunct music-news site seems like a pretty poorly conceived idea.
That’s not even a question.
Isn’t resurrecting a defunct music-news site a pretty poorly conceived idea?
So why are you doing it? Surely nobody’s clamoring for it.
No, no one’s clamoring. But I’ve increasingly missed doing this, and I missed the community of music lovers that sprang up around the site. I’m rested, and ready for more. I may be the only one who cares, but it’s feeling really good to be back in the groove of things. I started this site back in 2009 for my own personal enjoyment, and that’s still the driving force behind this.
But what about all of this business? You were pretty melodramatic about giving it all up.
Yeah. Well. Things change. I don’t have a great answer for that. But, you know, if you read all the way to the end of that farewell post, I did leave the door open.
Nobody reads all the way to the end.
You don’t have to rub it in.
Still, it’s a bit awkward, isn’t it? The big, weepy farewell, and then, oh, never mind all that stuff I said, here we are again, like nothing ever happened.
Well, when you put it that way… But, yeah. I can’t pull off that quitting business twice, so I’m probably stuck with this now in perpetuity. This may not have been the most well-planned idea.
You’ve made a huge mistake, haven’t you?
It’s entirely possible.
